    Question for the guys about saddle -urgent

    I have a westeren saddle that I am selling on Ebay. It has a equitation seat which I find extrememly comfy (I'm female). I have a potential buyer that wants to know if a guy finds this saddle comfortable. I can't really answer the question as no guys in my family really ride.

    So, do any of you gentleman out there ride in this type of seat? Whats your opinion?

    Any comments would be greatly apprecited!

    The Saddle looks contoured for a good fit for anyone, I have seen the ads for Ladies Saddles, etc, but out of 7 vendors and 4 additional Saddle Builders almost everyone concludes the Ladies Saddle is a Marketing Gimmick, the Saddle Tree itself prescribes how the seat is built, there is some room for modification in the seat, but not as much as some advertises say.
    Not knowing the Brand, I can only estimate looking at the pic, it does have a little rise in the front of the seat, Personal preference in most cases would dictate suitability of this, but I do not see a major problem.

    I have a question? What exactly does it mean if you have an equitation seat?

    I sold a Circle Y a few months ago and it had an equitation seat. I never really knew what that meant in a saddle.

    Equitation Saddles or Equitation Seat, generally Refers to a Saddle with a Lower Cantle height than say a Trail Saddle or Barrel Saddle.

    Many times a Reining Saddle or Show Saddle will have a 3" or 3.5" tall Cantle, where a Trail might have a 4" or 5" and a Barrel or Wade, etc. might have a 5" Cantle.

    My husband actually liked riding in a saddle similar to that one. He felt it helped him sit back on his pockets better and he was able to kick his legs forward a little and actually sit deeper. I'm assuming that the male buyer is concerned about squishing the nuggets. I can say in all confidence that it was never an issue with the saddle we had.

    The saddle is a Crates. I love it, but it doesn't fit my horse at all so I have to replace it

    Crates is Good, you should get a good price.

    Ebay can be finicky, have you listed it on TackTrader.com or Equinehits.com

    EquineHits is free, they get a lot of hits, jut watch out for the scammers who want to send a check or pick it up by courier, etc.

    Another BB with a huge following is horsegroomingsupplies.com/horse-forums - ads are free too, they are one of the largest Forums I have ever found.

    With Ebay, I always list with my "bottom line" as a start. I'm not much of a risk taker
    I just couldn't figure out how to answer the persons questions as I'm not a guy and hubby really doesn't ride.
